Smith Takes Last Pot Before Break

• Level 7: 3,000-6,000, 0 ante
Dan Smith

On the last hand before the break, Mikhail Smirnov raised to 15,000 from under the gun. Dan Smith called on the button and then Gus Hansen called from the big blind. The three players then took the {K-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop and action checked over to Smith. He bet 18,500 and Hansen called. Smirnov folded.

The turn card was red, but not another heart as the {9-Diamonds} was added to the board. Hansen checked and Smith bet 36,500. Hansen called.

The river card was the {3-Diamonds} — once again red, but not a heart. Hansen checked and Smirnov bet 77,500. Hansen gave it up and Smith won the pot.
